Paradise: Faith shows us not only religious fanaticism in one of its most extreme forms. No. In Paradise: Faith, in fact, Ulrich Seidl shows us religion lived in a maniacal way that almost seems to forget the value of human beings themselves. Special Jury Prize at the 2012 Venice Film Festival.



In Paradise: Love we find all the constants of Ulrich Seidl’s cinema in a deeply intelligent, painful and merciless work. The cynicism and hypocrisy of human beings, the difference between social classes, but also – and above all – a deep loneliness and a desperate need for love are the absolute protagonists. Can there ever be an even faint chance of salvation? The director seems to have no doubt about it.
